Quilt Fest of Jacksonville 2015 ~ Part 3

      AND here are MORE from the Quilt Fest of Jacksonville!   Some of these had such awesome detail I just had to share.  I hope these quilters don't mind that I brag on their work.
@ the Quilt Fest of Jackonsville, FL 
 I had never seen stars like this quilt had.
So I have cropped to highlight each one.

 And the following was my favorite:
Seems like winning quilts had just a touch of bling.
Some quilts had just as much work on the back as the front.
Glad there were ladies waiting and eager to show us the back side.  I suggested they be hung single so you could view the back side. Maybe that should be a category itself and be displayed as such to show the backs.
I took a picture of this quilt, because it reminded me of the memory quilts I'm working on now.

 A Christmas quilt.
 Check out the use of the black and white speckled background fabric to emulate snow.

Finally, if you have a very large print fabric,
don't think you can't use it to piece a quilt.
Check this one out.
I hope you are getting in the mood to find the closest quilt exhibit.
Nothing like being there to see quilts in person.

  1. These are all so incredible. It makes me feel like I should be using all of my scraps for quilting. But the truth is I would never finish it.

  2. Lovely quilts, I love those houses - great use of texture. Thank you for sharing these.

  3. What beautiful quilts! That first star quilt is amazing! And I love the Christmas quilt.


Have a JOYful day!
